Shape of a Sonnet: Empathy Fueled, Maker Driven Poetry Analysis (VIDEO)

I’m going to write up more proper context for this in the near future, but I wanted to share these Periscope videos from my AP Lit class this past week while it was still fresh.   I love my classroom maker cart and the possibilities it holds for creativity and expression; I love it even more when it enables some deep critical thinking and serious chops analytical work.

Our whole process — from reading Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor to explaining our constructs — is here.  I intentionally omitted the feedback session as I wanted the students to feel as unfettered as possible to be critical and vulnerable.
